How do photographers think about and engage with place? In this issue of BJP we consider multiple facets of this question, from how image-makers shoot in one location to how cutting-edge artists and curators use space for photo-based installations.
Sebastián Bruno’s 10-year project draws on social and political history to picture Welsh towns and cities and the people who live in them, while Ettore Moni creates an autonomous zone in his home studio in which people can simply be. Tarrah Krajnak draws on her own life as a Peruvian adopted and brought up in the US, while a trip to Johny Pitts’ studio also proves a route into his childhood.
